. and, frankly, it's sad for someone who had a stature and a gravitas of john mccain. >> and i was going to say super pacts. but this just flopped. i think it's how republicans rolled back the clock on women. if we were remembering 2010, women did very well. but this year, they erased all of that. >> they decided to name one woman to the administrative committee. it was a housewife. >> yes, yes. but it was interesting. they went after women and, as jonathan said, then debate gays. it was a real contorted strategy: we're going to violate women openly and not debate gays and everyone marriage equality. >> think about it. the public opinion is moving away from opposition to gay rights. >> what i thought was very interesting and probably the worst plilt kal trend is in '88, there was a guy named brown that designed the dekawkis ad who came back with sicitizens unite. i think the worst trend was to take the lid off of the money, which was a right winged strategy that really backfired. it really drove them into the ground in the sense that i think that they thought they had bought ann election
's members with them. host: john mccain writes a big budget deal is still worth doing. he points out to the history of some of these agreements, most notably with ronald reagan in the 1980's and president bush in 1991 in which republicans agreed to spending cuts that never happened while raising taxes. guest: that's right. there's a little confusion about how much spending cuts happened. it's the same sort of formula both sides are pursuing this time. you lock in the tax increases on the front end. then you come back later, six months, nine months, 12 months and find spending cuts in defense programs and set them into law. if you're among republicans is if you reach an agreement now and agree to tax increases, the spending cuts will get undone or never will be followed through on. that's one of the things that has held back talks, because republicans are skeptical that democrats will follow through. host: charles is on the independent line from colorado. caller: good morning, steve. i listened to it the myopic dogma in this segment over and over. the only people i can blame on this a
's memoir, faith of our fathers. dreams from our fathers. i think i got john mccain -- i had the fathers part right. which he wrote and 95 or so. 95 or 96. marinus went back to less accurate in the book, so it's a great companion to read if you read obama's memoir. >> host: there's some publishers, sentinel cognitive umt, that put out a budget anti, david limbaugh the great destroyer, i am the change and do nice to see obama's america are quite critical of president obama. trained to commit to these sell well? >> guest: they do because they serve right your wrong light as a counterpoint. many readers wish to buy and another results have a very active audience in a president obama has been reelected, i'm sure these publishers with conservative in prince or conservative and crime will continue to produce books that sell well because they will appeal to an audience that demands these books. >> host: bob minzesheimer can have you interviewed critical authors? >> guest: no. going back has not recently taken on exactly president obama. it's sort of interesting. who's ever in power in the white
is bipartisan. so people like lindsey graham and john mccain know him and respect him. so i think he will breeze through the confirmation. >> well, with that, i want to play a sound bite of both those two senators that you just mentioned, their reaction today to the choice. here it is. >> we have known john kerry for many years. we have confidence in john kerry's ability to carry out the job. >> i think senator kerry was a very solid choice by the president. he has a lot of experience. he has been on the foreign relations committee for a very long time. he knows most of the world leaders. >> the susan rice/benghazi witch-hunt, what is your reaction to that? >> well, keep in mind john kerry is barack obama's first choice. susan rice wasn't a choice. she got tied up into the politics of benghazi. but this is who the president likes, believes in. kerry gave obama that great nominating speech slot in 2004. but kerry has been able to be bipartisan in the true sense. he has been able to cut deals and work with senators -- senator murkowski is a friend of his from alaska, for example. this is going to
but the key here is the performance from jessica chastain. a lot of controversy right now. senator john mccain came out and said the torture scenes are grossly inaccurate. see the movie for yourself. it is just a movie but it is apparently based on firsthand accounts. that is my number four of the year. >> i see moonrise kingdom. if you haven't seen rushmore or bottle rockets, i love this film. it is beautifully shot. it has a build where you can appreciate the film making. >> and number two. >> i'm getting a lot of hate for this one. >> cabin in the woods? >> it is a game changer. it is funny. jaw dropping hilarious at times. very violent. it appears to be a normal movie about teenages are going to a cabin in the woods. once the last 0 minutes hits, your jaw will drop. it is one of the few films that i wish i could rewatch and have a video camera on my face just to see my jaw hit the floor. my number two of the year, cabin in the roads number one. >> yes, shocker. it is django unchained. best movie tarantino has done since pulp fiction. the most romantic film he has written since true romance
what is going to happen with the sequester o. friday, republican senator john mccain said he doesn't see how a deal gets done without addressing the across-the-board cuts, which could cost a lot of contractors their jobs. >> the large defense contract is probably going to be okay and they have significant cash reserves. the smaller ones would have trouble getting the lines of credit extended, trouble keeping the employees if they can't be assured of continued employment. >> reporter: the only way to avoid the automatic $492 billion in cuts at the pentagon over the next nine years is for congress to make a deal in the next two days. >>> a state lawmaker is pulls out of the race with jesse jackson jr. 's empty congressional street. he was arrested december 5th because airport security screeners at chicago o'hare found an unloaded baretta handgun in his bag. he doesn't want the charges he faces to detract from the campaign. trotter told the officers at the airport he works a security job and that the gun is for that and that he forgot it in the bag. >>> a russian plane crashed killing
adoptions could come to a screeching halt. in the newsroom, melissa mollett, news4. >>> john mccain condemned the new legislation, calling it shameful and appalling. in a statement he said the effects are cruel and malicious. thousands of babies and children who had a chance for a loving home and better future will now be denied that opportunity. to punish babies and children over a political difference between our governments is a new low, even for president putin's russia. >>> more people wanting a chance to attend the inaugural ball next month, the limited number of tickets, the official ball will take place january 21st at the washington convention center. those interested in the public tickets need to sign up on the presidential inaugural committee's website 2013pic.org. information will be sent out by e-mails. tickets cost $60 each. >>> when we come right back, a dog is shot during a burglary in virginia. now there's a rescue mission to save a life. >>> and we continue to monitor the white house tonight. here's a live picture. president obama is expected to come out and give a
-presidential candidate pierre >> why? >> not a surprise -- candidate. >> why? >> not as surprised as john mccain paused. they played a very much to the base of the party and they needed to broaden out his appeal. there were always trying to grapple with the next challenge on the theory that a major step moving 1 foot in front of the other, just being on the ballot with barack obama because of all of the conventional wisdom you had cited earlier was enough. so the game was just to get to the next square. i think they had concerns about their convention, which was a very conservative group, representing many different candidates. they never fully embraced romney. i felt that the ryan choice was in part an effort to make sure that that yvette went well. t went well.even t it played in closer to the house republicans who -- congress was pulling 9%, 10%. every poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4%. so to pick someone who he identified as the intellectual leader of the republican party was clearly a very significant leader of that caucus and was surprising to me. brian was so identified with the pre
dianne feinstein, carl levin, as well as republican john mccain whose own experiences as a p.o.w. in vietnam have made him an outspoken critic of torture. now, since most people have not seen the film yet, let me explain a little bit. the torture scenes, which there are more than one show cia interrogators waterboarding, humiliating, and abusing detainees. in the movie, these interrogations do result in crucial information in the search for osama bin laden. now, i would not say that the film actually glorifies torture, but the cia operatives are not squeamish about what they're doing. at a later point in the film, one of the officials complained about president obama's decision to stop the detainee program. now, in a letter to sony, which is the studio behind the film, the senators say that "zero dark thirty" is, quote, perpetuating the myth that torture is effective. they argue that a still classified report proves they called the coercive interrogations did not result in any information that led to bin laden's capture. here's what else they had to say in the letter. they sa
the secret friendship of hillary clinton and john mccain. but a piece in today's politico asked when will the rit wing or the right start hating hillary clinton again? it's a fascinating story for political people. time magazine's rana joins us and steve kornacki. it seems to me if you listen to newt gingrich, who has become a commentator every time he's not running for something, you get the sense that you don't want to run against hillary clinton because she's grabbed the scepter. she's quite hawkish on issues like iraq and the middle east generally. i think she's very hawkish xa d compared to most democrats. where is the wiggle room to go against her? >> i completely agree. i think she's done an incredibly great job. she's been incredibly deft at are he positioning the u.s. in a mul multipolar world where we have relatively less economic power. she's managed through digital state craft, through smafert uses of technology to project a soft power and it's been a great credit to our country and i think it's going to be a real tough thing to put in a bad light. >> you know, and, stev
prominent. the fact that john mccain now loves the guy when in the 1970s the two of them would have been on polar opposite sides of the vietnam war. but because they're senators, they're best buds. i bring that up because jack reid who is a senator from rhode island, a lot of people like him, and they know he wants to be defense secretary. he is not someone who has been mentioned this time. someone like michelle flornoye who is already at defense and others are more likely. >> great to see you. thanks so much. >>> national rifle association head wayne lap pierre is not backing down. maybe you watched this on i on meet the press" over the weekend when he had a chance to soften his organization's message, and he chose not to. >> if senator feinstein's ban is that going to pass? >> i think that is a phony piece of legislation, and i do not believe it will pass for this reason. it's all not on lies that have been found out. >> nra consultant asa hutchinson, a former republican congressman, is also standing from arguing that there's no need to re-evaluate the nation's gun laws. >> what i will
the way along with folks likes john mccain to restore our -- to vietnam. it sent a powerful message to congress. over the years john has earned the respect and confidence of leaders around the world. he is not going to need a lot of on-the-job training. he has arned the respect and trust of his colleagues, democrats and republicans. i think it's fair to say that few individuals know as many presidents, prime ministers or grasp our foreign policies as firmly as john kerry and this makes him a perfect choice guide american diplomacy in the years ahead. >> "washington journal" continues. host: standard asked is politics editor with the washington times and he is here to talk to us about the fiscal cliff. what's next. so let's get to it. on friday you had the lead story with the headline boehner's plan fails to win over g.o.p. the collapse is a serious blow to house speaker john boehner who hoped to gain leverage in his discussion with president obama and signals conservative republicans are inwilling to stomach any rise in tax rates even on those making more than $1 million which was m
not bode well for the trial balloon of chalk .eguck hagel we have seen john mccain say they are going to vote for him. chuck hagel has been questioned by a number of republicans. lindsey graham is considered a more moderate republican. there is a concern with hagel and the pro-israel lobby. they tried engagement with iran for the first year of the administration and went to the toughest sanctions in history. hagel has been an opponent of those sanctions. if he changed his view, i think that would improve his chances. look at where he is on the foreign policy debate. obama has taken positions that are more to the center than hagel. host: if senator kerry becomes secretary of state, what does he bring? guest: john kerry will have to navigate the new relationship with political islam. as countries open up more and become more democratic, part is affiliated with the muslim brotherhood will have so far done very well. we're just at the beginning of the kind of new face with political is long. the united states has had a relationship with the muslim brotherhood for 100 years. that is often
together where they answered the same exact questions as john mccain and president obama did before president obama became president. many people loved that forum because they were asked the same exact question and it wasn't really a debate format and then romney and obama for whatever reason, if it was warren's decision or not, they did not do that this time around. this is the most forthright i've seen rick warren be when asked a political question. >> clayton: yeah, wasn't holding back. he usually do not want to weigh in too terribly much on political questions and tries to elevate the conversation, which he did here as well. but i think that just shows his frustration when you have pastor warren talking that way. it's troubling. fingers crossed. >> gretchen: let's do some headlines now. we have a fox news alert. nato confirming a civilian u.s. contractor shot dead by an afghan police woman in kabul. authorities are treating it as a possible inside job again. at least 52 members of nato forces have been killed this year alone in the so-called green on blue attack where is we trai
. it was advocated by the john mccain and the wounded warriors and the chamber of commerce and john kerry and bob dole. it was voted down including five votes from former colleagues of bob dole despite his appearance just out of the naval hospital on a wheelchair. it was all over what the senate foreign relations committee had a rare -- record indicating the black helicopters were not coming. this was not some crazy requirements on america. it had already been the standard. it was the thing that 126 other countries have ratified. it went down. i am still trying to understand the opposition. >> what do you think? >> i think it is fear. that is why we did it is fear. -- it is fear. someone is able to hike this notion that we are going to one ratifyingernment by citin this treaty that really ratifies our law for decades. we operated just fine. even the chamber endorses it. there is this fear of the government, the fear of being required to be accountable for having health insurance, at the so-called mandate, even though there is help if you need it. >> there is a velocity of information through both
. senator john mccain on twitter calling the general one of the great american heroes. we thank him for his service. stormin norman, as he was called, was a big man who left a big legacy. with us this morning is another general, general james spider marks joining us from virginia via skype. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> you know, stormin norman is what i remember about general norman schwarzkopf. a name he earned. a "time" magazine correspondent once called him a man with a john wayne swagger and a growl like a grizzly. is that how you remember him? this truly was a 20th century american military hero general schwarzkopf was a bigger than life man. his nickname personified that. it was a label he would protest openly. he was a humble man. what he-when you think about what he was asked to do, you keep it in context. the army had gone through this incredible turmoil post vietnam. i was a young lieutenant during that period. our army doctrine grew, it emerged. it was validated by general schwarzkopf in the deserts of kuwait when he ousted saddam's military. he was the significant ma
event that process that would embody that was the gang of fourteen. when we put together with john mccain i put together six other democrats and six other republicans to get judges up or down vote to avoid the nuclear option. changing the rules effectively turning the senate to a smaller version of the house where the right of the minority caucus are ignored. and so consequently, when we were able to work together, that way crossing party lines may be crossing what the administration wanted done or what the caucus leadership on both sides wanted done, it showed that we had a certain independence, and i'm an independent-minded sort of person to begin with. we had an independence. i'll never forget the late senator robertbird sitting -- birthday sitting in the office with us sopping saying quote, unquote, we saved the senate. and i thought . >> what was the instance that caused him to sob? >> the fact that we came an agreement. we were going to vote for the extraordinary circumstance to give judicial appointees nominees an up or down vote rather than have to go the filibuster or the vote of
things we've seen in recent decades was when john helped lead the way, along with folks like john mccain and others, to restore our diplomatic ties with vietnam. when he returned to the country where he and so many others had fought so long ago, it sent a powerful message of progress and of healing. over these many years, john's earned the respect and confidence of leaders around the world. he is not going to need a lot of on-the-job training. he has earned the respect and trust of his senate colleagues, democrats and republicans. i think it's fair to say that few individuals know as many presidents and prime ministers or grasp our foreign policies as firmly as john kerry. and this makes him a perfect choice to guide american diplomacy in the years ahead. on a personal level, john has been a great friend. i've appreciated john's partnership in helping to advance so many of my foreign policy priorities, including the ratification of the new start treaty. i've called on his talents and diplomatic skills on several occasions on complex challenges from sudan in south sudan to the situation
feinstein, carl levin, john mccain, all of whom sent a letter to sony pictures calling the film grossly inaccurate and misleading. "the new york times" is now reporting that cia act director michael morrell sent out an agency-wide letter criticizing it. >> it is no question that the -- political drama around this movie is added to the buzz and made it as interesting as the film itself. i guess in the -- in the -- lit help drive interest into this thing but there's also a negative which is the fact that there's been so many of these political complaints that it could hurt the film at oscar time. lot of people will be voting for best picture, you know, may vekd thoughts because they -- they have this sense from, you know, authoritative sources that there is misleading and -- harmful position. >> can i ask you quickly of focus on this lone wolf character maya who is credited with the tracking down of bin laden. was this the case in reality? >> this is a very accurate portrayal. the woman is a real person and not a composite. she is still at the cia and under cover. a woman in her 30s who w
